Access division reverses ferry cancellations

An explanation is still forthcoming as to the real reason for the ferry activity cancellation announcement earlier this week.

Sources however, could not confirm that the decision for the cancellation was done with any other advice, but was done unilaterally.

Media Reports that the Access Division on Wednesday bowed to public pressure and reversed the earlier decision to cancel ferry operations, having drawn harsh criticism from citizens, visitors to, and friends of the island.

After not responding to enquiries, the Access Division said its rationale for calling off the service was due to low passenger bookings. This drew the obvious concerns as persons questioned whether or not such a decision could be justified in the peak Christmas Festival season.

About midday on Wednesday it was easy to confirm the Access Division posted a notice on Facebook indicating that the ferry would leave Antigua at 7pm Wednesday evening, apologising for the inconvenience the change of plans would have caused the traveling public.

Travelers expressed their annoyance at the cancellation and how it severely affected their travel.
